"A strange synthesis of Mithrianism, Babylonian mysteries and Germanic winter festivals. Which is totally apropos and fitting in the setting of the steeple houses in which they meet. Steeples fashions after the obelisk, which according to the text…"

"Christmas for me just tends to be a time where my sister, mum and I just spend some time together. It's just a convenient throwback for me, really. Yeah, the overt displays of religion piss me off, but at the end of the day, I just treat it as…"

Wendy replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"That's our plan. Our son will be 1 on Dec. 30 (so he doesn't really notice things yet), but we'll explain it as a holiday to celebrate family & enjoy each other. In addition to the tree & snowmen, I also decorate with a…"

April replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"I always laugh when people say that we need to "put christ back in christmas." He wasn't even in there to begin with! They stuck christianity in a pagan holiday, and now are so arrogant as to think that the secular parts of christmas…"

Sakura replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"I don't have any children, but I have gotten my Mormon family to the point of viewing it as a time to help others out (donating items or time to charity, volunteering wherever possible, etc.) and the stepping stone between Autumn and Winter.…"

PeeJay replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"My family isn't particularly religious. My mom is agnostic at best in my estimation, though we've never actually discussed it. My siblings claim belief (one is gay, one is living with his ex-wife, and the other refuses to acknowledge my…"

godlizard replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"We do pretty much exactly as you describe, there is good food, family, presents, and much joy. I have no problem with Xmas as its origins predate Christianity, and it has been so secularized by the commercial aspect (which I have no problem with,…"

Paul Perry replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"Hi! I've always celebrated christmas in the traditional British secular way. When Christian groups have their annual moan about us "losing the meaning of christmas" they're right;for most people it isn't a religious festival…"

"yea i celebrate it christmas! is awesome, but not for all the jesus stuff, for me its a time to drink eggnog and singin till the neighbors threaten 2 shoot ya lol"

Corey Lord replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"We celebrate Christmas because of the family closeness and the fact that we focus on the giving aspect. Most of the symbols that we incorporate are more from the pagan side with trees and such which we feel shows the the earthiness of the holiday."

Serotonin Wraith replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"You don't need to believe in the Jesus stuff to enjoy Christmas any more than you have to believe in Santa. It's the Christians who should be more concerned about celebrating it with all the pagan rituals in it."

Dave G replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"The Christmas push is just as bad over here, with the Christmas items and sales beginning in October, or in the rare cases, September. At least they tend not to start playing nonstop Christmas carols on the loudspeakers until November. Japan does…"

Rev. Tom Hicks, D.D. replied to CelticDiablo's discussion 'Do you celebrate christmas, but for a different reason?'
"My son at last Xmas over at the in-laws asked me, "What are you doing here?" (he was 3 & just ask random stuff) & I said, "I don't know, I say we get the hell out of here & go home.""

About Me:
I am a 31 year old father of 2 wonderful boys. I work in the greater Philadelphia area.
Age
31-35
Why are you here?
As I grow older and more aware of happenings in the world, specifically this country, I am bothered by the continued involvement of god and religion in my government. I am looking for like minded individuals that share this thought and want to change it.
The religion you left
Was never a part of one
Why you left your religion.
Never had a real belief in god(s). Certainly had no reason to join and thusly leave a religion :).
